Broadcast veteran becomes MultiDyne director of engineering

MultiDyne has hired broadcast veteran John Ferder as its new director of engineering. Over the course of three decades, Mr Ferder moved from the supplier and systems integration side of the business with engineering roles at Chyron Corporation, Roscor Corporation and Phillips/BTS before climbing the engineering career ladder at CBS, where he eventually rose to become director of studio and postproduction engineering.

Returning to the manufacturing end, Mr Ferder will report to MultiDyne president Frank Jachetta and develop long-term product strategies, liaising with the production, marketing and supply chain teams. Since he started working for CBS, broadcast and production workflows changed significantly with the introduction of IP and cloud-based systems.

‘Fibre is used today to transport files over the internet for many broadcast and production applications,’ Mr Ferder noted. ‘We see new opportunities to improve encryption and compression to transfer files and higher data payloads over a single fibre faster and more efficiently. This will grow in importance as more facilities migrate to IP, and the release of the SMPTE 2110 standards will help to accelerate these developments. We will bring new, IP-focused products to market that are more compact, more efficient and aligned with businesses that build fixed and mobile production studios based on these standards.’

‘John brings a fresh engineering perspective to MultiDyne that will take the company to new heights of product innovation, yet also streamline ease of use for our customers worldwide,’ commented Mr Jachetta. ‘This includes improved accessibility to product information with clear and concise language, which will accelerate the learning curve for end users across all skill levels.’
